    Give to your local school. I recently did this with colored papers
    that were of art quality.

    do you have charities in your area that use recycle clothing etc - helps the needy and also clears your left overs or not wanted stuff - good luck with move - it is the hardest thing to do

    Do you have thrift shops in Jordan? If you do you could always donate unwanted items there. I do not know much about other countries and what is available but try asking around you might be surprised at who might take these items off your hands.

    I agree with donating to schools. Ours are always looking for supplies.

    Do you have women's shelters there? I don't know what the equivalent is for Goodwill, etc. over in Jordan. It may take some figuring out, but the recipients will appreciate it.

    What about Churches? Some of them here have storage space where they collect items to give to fire victims and other folks like that. And in every country in the world there are areas where the poor and homeless collect..in those areas there should be charity shops...but I really feel that Churches are the best ones to check with.

    How you get rid of stuff also depends on

    Do you want to get some money for some of your items?

    Do you want to give it away for free?

    Jordan is sure a long way from the United States!! If you are just looking to give it away talk to some Church leaders there and to see if they will accept, or even see what organizations the U.S. may have there who will accept. My second thought is aren't there some type of open markets around there where people may sell their items they no longer want? My best advice would be to ask some one there in Jordan what they do!!

    eBay has international sellers. Go to www.ebay.com Click on "Site Map" in blue letters at the bottom fo the page. When the Site Map page appears, move the page down until you see the "Help Topics" section on the right side, click on "A-Z Index." When that page appears, you'll see the alphabet printed in English. Click on the letter "I," then find "International Selling." The page that appears has topics that will tell you how to sell on eBay.

    Maybe post a notice at your local shops...or library. When I lived in overseas there were a lot of people coming and going...so it works pretty well if there are a lot of expats.
